It's Time for Parents to Take the Reigns

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Dec 14, 2018 5:14:00 AM

As a childcare provider, and an older one at that, I've noticed a trend; parents aren't necessarily parenting anymore. Children have control of the household, and parents are jumping through hoops to make the children happy, and in return; teachers, babysitters, nannies, and other childcare givers are having a more and more difficult time making sure children are safe, not hurting others or each other, teaching, preparing meals etc. Families too are suffering the consequences by having a chaotic home.

Recruiting Babysitters

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Nov 9, 2018 5:02:00 AM

I can't tell you how hard it is to find people that take babysitting seriously. During my time operating an agency that places babysitters for ongoing, permanent, or on-call positions I've heard and seen it all, and I'm still surprised at the laissez faire approach that people try to get away with when talking to me about why they want to babysit. If I were a parent I would want someone like me to take on the recruiting process. It is one of the worst parts of doing what I do. People don't show up for interviews, don't return your calls, show up late for interviews, come to an interview dressed inappropriately, and so many other things.

Autism and Occupational Therapy

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Aug 24, 2018 5:50:00 AM

As a Babysitter that has worked for decades, nearly 4 decades, I am amazed, and a little bewildered about all of the Autism that is being diagnosed, and the frequency of Occupational Therapy that children are needing. When I'm confused about something I start to research what I don't understand.

Crafting With Babysitters In a Pinch 3

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Aug 3, 2018 5:00:00 AM

It's the first of the month, and time again to craft with us. I know we could probably do a craft post more frequently, but everyone has craft ideas, and Pinterest is full of them. When Babysitters In a Pinch posts a craft; we've done it, tested it, and will usually share pics that will never, ever look perfect because we are really, truly, crafting with kids; not doing it for THEM.
